MiLB Sets Its Sights On State-Of-the-Art Production With Peerless-AV Alliance

NYSJ Sports-Entertainment Business News Service

February 26, 2019:
This is not your grandfather’s AV squad.

Stating that the alliance would “position the league as a dynamic leader in sport and entertainment,” MiLB has signed a multi-year pact deal naming Peerless-AV— a leading manufacturer and provider of audio-visual products — as its “official digital display partner."

Under terms of the alliance, Peerless-AV would integrate into MiLB's existing partnerships with Allegiant Air and ISM Connect to “establish (Peerless-AV) as the exclusive provider of screen technologies for Minor League Baseball.”

The deal with Peerless-AV builds on another pact signed in July 2018, in which MiLB joined with ISM Connect to launch the Allegiant Airline Network, calling it the “largest in-venue digitally connected smart-screen network in sports and entertainment.”

The installation process of Peerless-AV displays is underway for Opening Night 2019, with MiLB and Peerless-AV are planning additional placements during the year.

In 2019, select MiLB clubs will have the opportunity to participate in the digital network, with the technology furnished by Peerless-AV.

More than 50 MiLB ballparks are scheduled to feature Peerless-AV technology by Opening Day 2020, according to the league.

"Minor League Baseball is committed to driving innovation and enhancing ballpark experiences for our fans,” David Wright, chief marketing and commercial officer for MiLB, said via the league. “Peerless-AV's commitment to be at the forefront of digital display technology aligns perfectly with our vision for being a leader in authentic fan engagement.

"This partnership will allow us to continue making deeper and more meaningful connections with our fans and position MiLB as a dynamic leader in sport and entertainment."

According to MiLB, ISM Connect's solutions give its teams a “new means to disseminate their marketing messaging and allow them to monetize new inventory by building the network's capabilities into existing or new business partnerships.

“Leveraging ISM's content management system to produce, schedule, and manage targeted marketing and custom branded content will allow teams to drive engagement, incremental revenue and brand conversions.”

"ISM Connect's digital engagement network will transform how Minor League Baseball teams and ballparks connect their technology to their fans and in turn, enhance the overall consumer experience," Wright said when the ISM Connect deal was signed.

"This partnership will allow us to understand and connect with our fans on a deeper level, while continuing to evolve as a leader in the technology space."

According Nick Belcore, evp for Peerless-AV, ”Creating and implementing high-quality display solutions to enhance the fan experience is a key focus for our team at Peerless-AV.

“With a shared goal of increasing fan engagement through the use of innovative technology, we are excited to be partnering with Minor League Baseball on this initiative."

Throughout the new partnership term, MilB said that Peerless-AV technology would be incorporated into numerous locations — including concourse LCD displays, video boards and ribbon boards — "to further boost fan engagement and partnership opportunities for MiLB and its teams."
